Pros

Laudate includes many awesome resources such as an interactive Rosary, Daily Readings, the Liturgy of the Hours, the Roman Missal changes, and the NAB and Douay-Rheims versions of the bible – all in a simple to navigate layout. But what makes this app shine for me is the HUGE selection of prayers – in both Latin and English!

They are sorted into intuitive groups such as the “Marian Group” and “Mass Group” and you can even create your own folder of “My Prayers” to easily access your favorites. The font size and color scheme are customizable, and there are six language options. The developers are also constantly updating this app, providing a huge selection of up to date, bug-free content.

Cons

While Laudate has so many resources, this means that some resources will be less than useful or appealing. The Catechism from St. Charles Borromeo and the Liturgy of the Hours both display web-content in the app, which makes for a harder to read interface. And both versions of bible require a web connection and are not searchable, making scrolling through chapters the only option for browsing. These “cons” aren’t major issues, however.

Overall

Laudate is a fantastic single-source app for a variety of Catholic needs. But what makes this app truly shine is it’s price-tag: free. There’s no excuse not to download this gem, even if it’s just for the prayer content. There is so much available for the faithful smart-phone user that I recommend it to everyone. And once you download it, you’ll definitely find it to be an important tool in your Catholic app arsenal.

    When saying the interactive Rosary, the button to go back and forth during the prayers is too close to the button to exit. also I cannot find the prayer said at the end of the Rosary in the list of prayers. I’ve been looking for that prayer for a long time because we used to say it before the Rosary and we called it “Prayer before the Rosary”. I finally scrolled down farther and found it after the “Hail Holy Queen”. What is the name of this prayer? Can it be found in the list of prayers so I can book mark it?

    I read your prayer of Our Lady of All Nations. I noticed you have the original version; however, that’s not the version approved by the Church. It should read: “may the Lady of All Nations, the Blessed Virgin Mary…” Please, check this out and have the approved version published. I understand we have to be obedient to the Church. Thank you.

    Can I get Laudate in a version that I can use on my MacBook Pro laptop. I travel a lot and need a version for my computer vs my iPad. I do not have a a smart phone. I love the app but cannot take both my iPad and Laptop every time I travel.

    I downloaded the app this morning, did an examination of conscience, did a mock confession (a real one scheduled for this evening) and attended mass. I want everyone I know to use this application on their smart phones. It is a great resource and guide. It could accidentally turn any normal pagan into a practicing Catholic. The prayer list is incredible! Thanks. Tom
